About Me

   Hello everyone!!  My name is Erin Murphy and I am a kindergarten teacher.  I have been teaching kindergarten for three years, and have been an elementary school teacher for nine years.  I am a firm believer in making sure you learn something new everyday and push yourself out of your comfort zone, so I am embarking on my newest adventure: blogging!!  This is the very first blog I have ever done, and I hope to learn and grow throughout this process!  First, let me tell you some things about me!
   I live in a rural community in Eastern Maryland, not too far from the Chesapeake Bay.  I have been teaching at the same school for my entire teaching career, and I absolutely love it!  It is so wonderfully amazing to work in a school where everyone is more like family than simply coworkers.  Wasn't it Mark Twain who said 'Find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life"?  Well, not only do I have a job I love but I work in a place that I love with people that I love!  Can't get much better than that!!  Here I am posing for the class book we created for the beginning of the year, to help our littles learn about their new school and all of the wonderful people in it!
   When I'm not at school, I am at home relaxing with my incredibly wonderful furbaby.  Her name is Isis and she is a blue brindle American Pit Bull Terrier.  I have to say that I have never had such an amazingly wonderful dog, super affectionate and loyal.  I know that pibbles get a bad rap, and we get a lot of wary looks when we're out and about.  However, I must say that she is the friendliest dog I've ever owned and she just seems to love everyone!  The only attacking she does is with her kisses! (Unless you're a stuffed toy with a squeaker inside...she REALLY has a vendetta against those!)  Lots of people ask me if she is a rescue dog.  I always tell them that no I did not rescue her, she rescued me!  She just turned two years old, and I honestly can't imagine my life without her in it!  Isn't she just the cutest thing!?!

  One of our favorite things to do together is watch our favorite football team, the Baltimore Ravens!!  I have been a huge fan of them since I was 16, when they first came to Baltimore.  One of my goals is to get myself to a game...I've never had the tailgating experience, can you believe it!?!  I make sure Isis shows her Purple Pride too!!

  Last, but most definitely NOT least, I like to spend as much time as possible with my nephew, Mason.  He is also my godson, which makes it doubly special!!  As of yet, I don't have any children of my own (except for the bunch that I get every August) and I tend to spoil him.  He is a super awesome boy, and he's growing up so fast!  This school year he'll be starting 3rd grade, and it seems like only yesterday that I was in the hospital holding his red, wrinkly little self!!  He completed his very first Mud Run this summer, and I couldn't be more proud of him!!

  I hope that you have learned a little bit more about who I am!  Please stop by and visit my TPT store, and don't forget to click on the red star to become a follower so you can keep up to date with my latest and greatest!!
